“As Scotland rebuilds from the pandemic, and as we look to our last chance to avoid a climate catastrophe, we face an unprecedented opportunity to build a new economy for Scotland that protects the planet and serves the people. Rather than an economy we all serve to enrich the few at the cost of environmental destruction.” – Patrick Harvie MSP, Scottish Greens.
